Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I’m from North Carolina. Only writ me 1 novel, but she’s a whopper of a tale.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The book is called Colby the 9/11 Parakeet. I wanted us to finally have some real good laughs about the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks. That was a sad day, for sure, but it’s time to move on. The best way to move on is to giggle, chuckle, guffaw, or chortle, depending on your personal taste. I made any and all of the above responses to 9/11 possible with my book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I guzzle near-toxic amounts of caffeine and listen to jazz, a genre of music I don’t like.

Dr. Chuck Tingle, David Foster Wallace, Thomas Pynchon, some Office Depot catalogs, a few midgets, a few hobos, a few midget hobos.
